RCMP are crediting the media for helping to round up an assault suspect.

An arrest warrant was issued for 40 year old Calvin Alexander Garner late last week. Police believe he may have been involved in a serious domestic assault involving a knife last Wednesday night.

The RCMP put out a release Thursday asking for help, at the same cautioning the public to not approach the 40 year old.

"Mr. Garner is likely aware that he is wanted by police," Cst. Tracy Wolbeck said. "For this reason, we want to caution anyone against engaging him personally, but to call police immediately should he be spotted."

Garner was arrested within hours and remains in custody.
